    Thats great, I especially like the very first and last one.

    I really like how your sketches convey a lot of action instead of very static poses too How do you get those action poses? Was curious if you use a reference or from imagination (or I guess it could be both)?

    Hi there

    Robolus - thnx, i like the soldier too.

    Marie, thnx. I did most of these while i was away so i did not have much ref - for the soldier i did obviously. I try to visualise an action in my mind, something a character in a movie or story would do. Then i think of a nice camera angle and try to draw it.

    I need to do much more life study - fortunately my first classes start in a week! I'm still trying to get back some skills in rendering and sketching, if i look at some of the drawings in this section i always find it remarkable that they look so crisp and to me my own stuff looks so 'worked' and like drawn with a blunt object :-/ Perhaps i need to draw bigger than A4/letter size ...

    Well practice practice!

    E.

    Nice to see you posting again. You´re still looking for historical roots, aren´t you?

    I like the last badge of clothing studies - the are quite consistent in character. The only figure that doesn´t fit completely is the one in the upper right. A longer Jacket or some cloth/gambeson under the breastplate would fit it better into row with the others.

    A lot of the mannikins you´re doing are really good - sometimes you tend to use big heads (as I tend to use too big hands ) but that´s o.k. with me.

    Good to see your stuff again.

    Hey Fipse,

    thanx! yeah - mostly medieval influences. I bought a number of Angus mcBride books from osprey, they're really nice. Thanx for the tip you gave me on that one! I also have a costume history book now but that focuses more on later periods.

    I want to be able to draw dynamic figures with dynamic clothing that;s why i need to practice a lot. I can;t draw any clothing really so now i just placed a number of copies of a basic body on a paper and i'm drawing clothing on that. Dynamic clothes come next!

    And you're right about the heads - need to pay attention to that.

    Tell me what you think of it
    Some of the designs are directly inspired by Angus McBride (Osprey books)
